Time To Take Stock.....

After a week hiatus I revived with new inspirations on how to proceed. The Lower sixth of the cannon assembly vexed me until I realized where my problem lay. It is pretty much what is found wrong with a majority of scratchbuilds; they are too square and straight sided. The lower rail needed some slight curvature to the sides and base.

Fortunately the material I am using has a taper for ease of extraction from the mould.

Playing on that feature I came up with the correct angles to duplicate the artist's rendering.

This will be more apparent in subsequent images.

I think I'll Have To Add Another Barrel:

Not much going on with the model these days. I've got 3/4 of a year working on these two guns and am nowhere near finished. For example today I spent reducing the bore of the five o'clock position barrel which gratifyingly finally looks right (to me).

I did a quick setup of the hull to take these pictures and have something posted before Christmas.

I made the barrels extra long so I could adjust the length with a minimum of refabricating

it seems I must adjust them by a ninth

To match the picture and the Sunfury Annihilator Turbo Laser.

Have a Happy Holiday.

Finest Kind

(Whom I kidding, I prefer 'Sterling' $11.99 per 1.75 liter) Good Vodka makes a terrible Martini.

Cheers!

Eight into Five just don't go evenly;

Cogs that is. Yeah I know but that's what the image calls for. It was either eight or nine and there wasn't space for nine cogs. I could have done six but the spacing would have been too great. No matter how you slice it the revolving chamber just doesn't work. But you know I just don't care anymore. I'm tired of playing with these guns :D

Last night was the first time in three weeks I actually had time to work on this thing since New Years.

I've decided that the 5 barrels remain stationary and the cylinder revolves. Don't ask me how or why but dimmit that's the way it's gotta be.

Now I've gotta adjust the barrel length and the support carriage.

And get this show back on the road.

The rotating ammo cylinder for the barrels does make sense, not being able to log into your own thread unless it's under a different name, not so much

Egad! I've forgotten how this thing goes together!

It's been six or so months since this Emperor Titan took a header (fortunately without sustaining much damage) and it was, at the time, inexpedient to reassemble the completed components. So this past week I've been trying to figure out HOW I BUILT THE [email protected] THING! All the body components interlock together without glue to facilitate assembly and disassembly (So I can add the interior detail when I get to it) but there are 20 to 30 major components and the sequence of how they are assembled has been trial and error. HA!

Anyway here is what it looked like before it toppled and we can go from there.

An emperor class titan is hard to kill! Keep up the great work!

A Crash Test Dummy:

Is building this Titan.

I wish I could blame this on the cat or something but instead I am making inroads into stupidity.

I was going to show the interior with the positioning plugs I have been working on for the past few days but instead here we see a pile of rubble which was the inner levels of the interior.

https://i.imgur.com/ZzEMFGN.jpg


Fortunately its not all as bad as it seems in spite of falling the same 5 feet again in much the same trajectory as the previous fall a couple of days ago although the computer chair did not intervene to soften the mishap this time so a few items actually did break this time.

As I type the glue is drying and most of the damage is repaired (I'm getting good at it by now)

Anyway, with hope, I'll be able to photograph the aligning plugs later today.
